It's probably because you sit on the forums too much. :)

Brian, we all love you, just go out and train. I had that period of time, where everyone on here was just grumpy, and I watched lots of chill parkour videos, and compared my level to theirs. I felt like shit. I felt like I don't belong.

But you do belong. So go out, focus on ONE vault/technique, and get it done. It could take all day, 3 days, 3 weeks, but you will progress. :)

I don't go far away to train, either. I got down all the techniques (kong, dash, lazy, thief, speed, wallrun, wall up, roll, diving roll, precisions) at either my home or out the door where I work. I didn't have to go spot-hunting (even though that would be awesome) to get better.

Whatever the case, be patient and hang on. :)

I got new sneakers today! They're gray...with a purple swoosh. :)

Anyways dude, everyone has slumps. Try to learn a new technique or perfect your old ones. Rome wasn't built in a day.

Haha that was great. I agree with Evan about the awesome part.

Anyways Brian, try to focus on one technique or try to make old ones as close to perfect as you can. :) I'm a bit in a slump myself and this is what I've been doing.

I'm building precision trainers. :) I want to make a vault box. Building the trainers are helping me get out of my slump.

Just Go to your local school than :D im bad.. no dont do pot... it ruins your running and breathing and makes you all URGH when your off it... im pretty f#cked up medically from drugs, so dont do them. DRUGS ARE BAD... Even the ones the doctors give you! every drug is some kinda toxin! it makes you feel better.. but it also ruins other parts of you.. liver.. kidney.. lungs.. I know even my inhaler f#cked my lungs up when i was little and that gave me a breathing issue that i have now..
